This Martin C is a unique horn that Joe Shepley had modified for himself.  It features a Martin C valve block, Calicchio 2 leadpipe and a tunable Bach 229 Corporation bell.  The horn has a full sound with a bit more bright overtones than a normal Bach 229 C trumpet.  Response is very quick, and the horn lights up with very little effort. No case.
